妻子集会,
当愿众生,
怨亲平等,
永离贪著。

– 文殊菩萨
    (华严经: 净行品11: 第3偈)

[When] wife and children gather,
[reflect that] ‘May sentient beings’
enemies [and] relatives equally,
forever renounce greedy attachment.’ *

– Manjusri Bodhisattva
   (Avatamsaka Sutra: Chapter 11 On Pure Practices: Verse 3)

* As all beings are our family
   in past and future lives too,
   including present enemies,
   there should be renunciation
  of attachment to any,
  while caring equanimously for all.
